The race was won by Japan’s Yoshihide Muroya, with Australia’s Matt Hall placing second and Martin Šonka of the Czech Republic coming third. The results see Šonka remain at the top of the World Championship standings with 63 points, Muroya four points behind with 59 and Canada’s Pete McLeod in third at 56 points.
The three pilots at the top of the standings will be determined to capture their first World Championship title at the final race, which will take place at the USA’s Indianapolis Motor Speedway on 14-15 October. It’s all to play for, as American Kirby Chambliss – just behind McLeod with 52 points – could overthrow them all with the advantage of home crowd support as well as the experience of earning two previous World Championship titles.
